  • How can there only be 12 cases in Livingston County?? When you look at the stats it is more like 438 cases. I don’t get it.

    • This is Livingston County, Missouri.

      • Thank you for your reporting; state/national news is generally available, but it is especially important to have local information now. I realize this is a much more condensed format than print journalism, & that you don’t have the luxury of an expanded format like NPR.

        However, more information would be helpful in understanding what is happening locally in Chillicothe/Livingston CO, MO. For example: age range (pediatric, 18-34, 35-49, 50-65, 65+), community spread (i.e., is this someone who has sheltered locally since March) vs. travel-related (off to party at The Lake/shop in the City/etc.). This general information would not violate patient privacy, but could help the public better understand what you’re reporting, which is especially important given the general negligence of masking & social distancing in the area.

        Again, thank you for the local reporting.
